My Card for the Karen Burniston Designer Challenge Inspired!


It's almost challenge time for the Karen Burniston Design Team, this month we were to create Inspired by one of out team members. This was a really really hard decision as they are all so very talented.  When I saw that  the Amazing Shelly Hickox created a planter from the House Pivot die I was just in Awe and knew I needed to challenge myself and do it!   My project is no where near as Amazing as Shelly's but It sure was fun! You can see Shelly's original project HERE!  If you have not been to Shelly's Blog before, RUN....this girl is crazy Amazing!

Here is the Front of my Card:

I kept it very simple by Stamping the MFT Wood grain Plank background and adding a few Hydrangeas in Blue by Hero Arts.  I used an older Penny Black Sentiment stamped on to a Stitched Katie Label from the Katie Label Accordion set by Karen Burniston.

Here is the Inside inspired by Shelly using dies by Elizabeth Craft Designs.

Hard to believe that that fun planter is the House Pivot card die huh?  Check out Shelly's Blog to see how it is done by basically cutting the top of the roof off and folding the pivot backwards.

Here is another View:

Funny when we lived in Northern Ca I had three Hydrangea Plants they were my babies and I loved them!  Although I wanted them to be  the really pretty light blue they grew a purple blue like the above flowers I never could get the soil to change so they would come up  the lighter Blue!
On the Hydrangea on the right I also did the back of the Flower as you could see the back when opening the card.

Here is a Close up:

I Love Susan's Garden Flowers by Susan Tierney Cockburn for Elizabeth Craft Designs they are so realistic and Fun!

I used several Dies by Karen Burniston for Elizabeth Craft Designs all Linked below.

Wednesday be sure to head over to the Elizabeth Craft Designs Blog and see all the Creations by my Amazing Teamies and our  Fearless leader Karen Burniston who has the most Amazing Mind! :)

Thank You for stopping I hope you have a wonderful day!!
